Review: Lavera Soft Rose Lip Balm

Lavera Soft Rose Lip Balm

I love most of the products from Lavera and more so if I got them at a substantial discount! Like this Lavera Lip Balm in Soft Rose. I wouldn’t have gotten it at the original price which is slightly over S$12 but at only about S$4? Of course I had to grab one to try out!

Doubles up as a lipstick
I was kind of puzzled to find out through the web that this lip balm does double duty as a lipstick because I didn’t realized initially that this lip balm comes with a faint pink color. I don’t see much of the pink when applied on my lips anyway although I concede it does add a soft shimmer.

Contains 10 flower and plant oils
The lip balm is described as being packed with the ten nourishing flower and plant oils but don’t expect 100% organic or natural content. It contains: Shea Butter, Olive Fruit Oil, Beeswax, Candelilla Wax, Cocoa Seed, Butter, Squalane, Jojoba Seed Oil, Lysolecithin, Vitamin E Acetate, Soybean Glycerides, Polyglyceryl-3 Ricinoleate, Soybean Oil, Shellac Wax, Sweet Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Rapeseed Sterols, Calendula Flower Oil, Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, Wild Rose Oil, Vitamin E, Vitamin C Ester, Bismuth Oxychloride, Mica, Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Oxide, Carmine, Iron Oxides. It doesn’t come with any SPF but I think the Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide might offer a little sun protection for the lips.

Lavera Soft Rose Lip Balm

Pretty color but weird smell
I like the soft pink color of the lip balm – it’s really pretty and unique! The other thing I like is the moisture factor. It doesn’t come with fragrance but there is a weird smell to this lip balm that I don’t like. However, the smell is only present if I take a close whiff at the stick. Other than that, I think it’s a great lip balm to get at such a great discount. At the original price, I doubt I’ll ever lay my hands on it.

Spotted at Phyto Organics at #B1-74 Raffles City is another one with green packaging which is the Sensitiv formula. But online, you have a lot more other options!

    I got a green one for free and I can’t STAND the smell. Can’t describe but smells like food gone bad.

  2. Jasmine says:

    It looks similar to the Nivea Velvet Rose one! Have you tried that?

  3. The Undercover Gypsy says:

    I liked the Lavera lipbalm too; I got the red one – the fruity lipbalm, I think? It too has a weird artificial makeup-y fruit smell, but gives a dark rose sheen that’s neutral.

  4. sesame says:

    I think it must be the same smell as the soft rose.

  5. sesame says:

    No, never tried Nivea’s.

  6. sesame says:

    I think they ran out of the red one. I imagine the color could be quite nice.


    I had bought the lavera soft rose last week. Personally i don’t think it covers the lips smoothly or adds and colour like it said on the package, and some of my friends who tried it agree.Their lipglosses are much better.

    The cherry one is the nicest, it gives colour and smells fruity

  9. sesame says:

    It’s just a lip balm to me. Nothing more. Some shimmer but the color is hardly noticeable.

  10. sesame says:

    Oh…no wonder I don’t see it anymore. It must have been snapped up earlier!

  11. Dee says:

    Reminds me of Blistex Slik N’ Shine. The color looks pretty. Is the smell that bad?

  12. sesame says:

    The soft rose isn’t nasty – not like bad food at least and the smell doesn’t linger on the lips at all.

  13. zip says:

    where to buy it for $4?

    The closing down promotion is over.
